Biotin For Hairfall After Childbirth
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

Is it safe to use Minoxidil 5% for hair loss while I'm trying for baby(pregnancy)with my wife?I stopped Minoxidil a while ago & now hairfall persists.
Minoxidil preg: This has never been tested to see if minoxidil, some of which is in your semen, can affect sperm Mobility or damage sperm so baby is "not right". I would not bet your babies life/ health on improving hair growth in you. I would look at hair loss patterns in you family as you likely inherited these genes. And then decide if you can live with that or if you prefer to gamble with your babies health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 33 yrs old, Asian and contemplating on taking 10000mcg Biotin supplements for hair fall !
Is this safe for Diabetic people ?
Safe and useless: You may take biotin, if you wish, but do not expect it to fix anything. If you are not deficient in biotin and it is extremely unlikely that you are, taking biotin is just throwing your money down the drain with your urine. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
